I'm a huuuuuuuuge fan of this game. I play at least an hour or two a day. I almost wish I never got it, though, because it's become addicting in a negative way. I've become so attached to my villagers & the quest to prevent them from moving that it causes stress & anxiety.

These are my villagers-

You've got the dragon!! That's the coolest villager of ALL THE GAME!

I quited the game because I lost one of my most beloved villagers and getting the ones you really like is a nightmare.
I had a room decorated like the power ranger headquarters (yes, there are different color Power Ranger suit on this game) and a Mr. Miyagi inspired bonsai room.

Fishing and collecting fossils was fun, but a serious and planed village design is simply too tedious for me and a new villager coming to the town can ruin all your work.

Finally me and my girl decided to resell it and now are extremly happy with Fantasy Life ^___^

I played daily until my ds broke earlier in the summer. Can't wait to get my new XL this month and get back to my town!

Haha, he's definitely a standout villager! I love Drago so much. That lazy personality really suits him. Man, I'd definitely quit if I lost Coco, she's my favorite, with Walt being a close second. Losing them would suuuuuuuck. I've pretty much had the same villagers since the beginning, so even the ones I like less are special to me. Bummed me out for a good long while when Rodney unexpectedly left. I miss that blue hamster.

My rooms are themed, but not rooted in pop culture. The main one is sort of a bedroom inspired by stuff I like, lots of purple, the bathroom is traditional Japanese, the attic is an arcade full of games & toys, the basement is a laboratory, got a 1950's diner styled kitchen in back, & a showroom where I keep trophies, villagers pics, rare items, etc. My museum is mostly for storage but I've got a Nintendo/Undersea room, as well as a Breaking Bad themed room.

I feel you on the planned village thing, but I recently wanted to rekindle the flame a little bit & started dedicating time to sprucing the place up. I actually really got into the groove of things & now I've got awesome gardens & themed portions of the town, as well as a stone path throughout. I really enjoy maintaining it all now, & growing gold roses/jacob's ladders feels great.

I've posted this a few times before but I lost interest in New Leaf after my file got corrupted for no reason and I lost everything I had. I've tried to get back into it but I just can't after that, it didn't help that I had already gotten tired of the game before that. I also can't see myself getting into another AC unless there's more changes. NL was good as a perfection of the original formula but I'd want something more, it'd be neat if they combined Tomodachi Life with AC somehow.

Anywho, in New Leaf villagers leave all the ****ing time, sometimes after not picking the game up for 2 weeks and every neighbor was new in the Gamecube game it took a while to get another villager and it was a big event. And while I hated when some of my favorite villagers left, I didn't like that I had the ability to choose in NL because that is part of the charm of the original game, life is bitter sweet and sometimes you lose things you like but in AC while you may get a neighbor you don't like you also get to meet others you might like more. I really hope there's an AC for the Wii U that can rekindle my love for the franchise.

Man, I'm generally unhappy with most of my villagers and I can't get any of them to leave. Luckily it isn't a make-or-break thing for me with Animal Crossing. The only villagers I really like are Cookie, Astrid, and Lucky [I currently have none of these] but I'm not all that concerned about getting them/keeping them. I'm just working on completing the fossil collection first and foremost.

I have to say that all these years later I'm still upset about my all-time favourite villager being cut after the GC game.

Godspeed, Twirp! You wonderful grouchy bastard! You bitter old loner,all alone on the hill in acre D-1. I miss you.

I really enjoy maintaining it all now, & growing gold roses/jacob's ladders feels great.
In the stage of the game I left it, my house was japanese themed mostly, but not exclusively. Main room was a living room with some Go games and oriental decoration. On the atic I had all the golden items, like an aztec temple. Left was the family antiques room, with the armor and sword collection, samurai and geisha mannequin and sort of things. Left was the bonsai room, with a bed and a workshop table for Mr. Miyagi and the tea wall decoration item (loved that item). Sometimes I choose Mr. Miyagi as my own mee to take some pictures =^_^=

For the bottom room I wanted something special, so the door was normally blocked by a japanese folding screen. If you were invited to my town I'd remove it so you could see the Power Rangers hideout, with all the space items customized in blue and the mannquins on all ranger costumes. This was actually the first room I considered finished, as I got all the items rom the space set and futuristic set, lots of computers and stuff. The 3D projector looked fantastic in the middle...

As you can see I put some energy on it, so when I started to loose villagers I knew the mechanics of the game would break my heart unless I exclusively played just AC, and I wasn't gonna do that.

I'll try to upload some pics if I find them on my DS so you can see.

I enjoyed playing New Leaf for a few months, but it got boring after that and I stopped playing.

Well I read that this was the last month for the Animal Crossing Plaza and what was going to be a 4 minute visit ended up being a 40 minute visit posting on all my ex-neighbors I could find. I don't understand why the service is shutting down, its a neat and doesn't cost them anything since its just text messages like any other forum...I mean you'll still be able to access the plaza and view messages just not post..

It also reminded me how much I like some of the characters in the series, I almost want to re-start my 3DS game and want a spectacular Wii U version.

Yeah, I haven't touched it much lately myself, partly because of my nocturnal schedule not co-operating with the gameplay. But I figure once I'm ready to pick it back up I'll restart my town and turn the clock 12 hours behind or ahead so I can do all my daily stuff at night.

Given how badly this game has messed my life up I don't even wanna think about another one coming for Wii-U, no matter how dope it seems.

I got back in when I got my new XL and I haven't missed more than a day so far. I play at least once every morning during my morning coffee at work and once or twice a week I'll maybe do some stuff at night. At least the scheduling in this game isn't as mean as the stuff they had you do in the Gamecube version. Waking up at like 6 am everyday in the summer for aerobics class or whatever. also

I'm happy with my town right now, cause I had two of the most annoying villagers finally move out - Rhonda and Twiggy. I disliked them based on their house placement, which totally screwed up my town layout. Stitches just moved in and he's awesome!

I'd die for a Wii U version, although I think it might be a bit too early for that.

I used to really play this game. Like 3 or 4 hours a day. I lost track eventually. I might start up again though.

Why haven't they made this game for Wii U? It would be so good to play online with other people...
